According to Reuters and U.S. Justice Department, the chief executive of a Vancouver-based company has pleaded guilty to facilitating international narcotics traffic by supplying drug cartels with encrypted communications devices. The secure communications devices were supplied by Vincent Ramos, the chief executive of Phantom Secure. Four co-conspirators helped traffickers distribute cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. When Ramos was arrested in Seattle, the Justice Department said it was the first time the U.S. government had targeted a company and its principals for providing criminals with the technology to evade law enforcement while committing transnational drug trafficking.
